Hoppin' World is a new Social VR app that lets you teleport your mind to anywhere in the world through 360 video-loops. It allows you to hangout with friends and family wherever; one moment you can be on top of the Olympic stadium in Montreal, and the next on a calm beach in Portugal. Right now the app is available on the Oculus Go, with more headsets to come in the coming months.
Hoppin' was created to allow for people to connect in a more natural manner and give the opportunity to hang out in cool places along the world. It also enables people to experience what being in certain places around the world feels like, in the hopes this will inspire and motivate them to go out and explore the world for themselves.
You can try Hoppin' on the Oculus Go here: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/go/1866016286807254/
If you don't have an Oculus Go, then you can check out some of the videos with your smartphone on our website: https://hoppin.world/
This is currently the closest thing we've found to real-world teleportation. As more and more 360 videos of awesome places around the world are added to the platform, the opportunities for everyone involved will become limitless.
It gives users the opportunity to explore with friends and family gives video producers the opportunity to share their content with the world for free. It enables brands to come alive by sponsoring awesome ‘chat rooms’, it enables tourism associations or any other interested company to promote awesome locations around the world, and it enables agencies to produce some of the most immersive experiences available today.
So next time rather than using skype or messenger to speak to your loved ones, and rather than using zoom or uberconference for your daily meeting with your work colleagues, try Hoppin’.
